insurance plans pay under part d of medicare for prescription drugs. they are taking advantage of their purchasing power. and we're relying on private insurers committee are' competition in part d of medicare, it isn't as effective as the v.a. which does take advantage of its market power. let me just talk for a moment on a private insurance. we rely on private insurance here. it's for-profit insurance. i think it leads to much higher health care costs. private insurers, obviously by definition, they have to make a profit. in addition to that they engage in marketing, they also engage in what we call medical understood writing, they have to hire a lot of actuaries to make sure that they're not taking on people who are too expensive. these are all very costly things. so that raises the price of private insurance. in addition, as i said, they don't have as much bargaining power so they also can't keep their prices low by taking advantage of the consolidated power that i'm talking about. so you might ask, why do we allow private insurance to have quasi-monopoly and the answer is t

social security and medicare and medicaid, probably the two main things basically bleeding us dry. but basically it is suicide to talk about those two. so we are going to have to go with, i guess, the spending cuts that he suggested. that is basically all i have to say. host: little rock, arkansas. paul on the republican line. caller: the morning, greta. i would like the president to talk about jobs and the economy. and during the campaign he promised to save millions of jobs. also promised to create millions of dollars. since he has been president he has created a huge deficit, sent $100 million to haiti, and there are many people right here in america who are unemployed, people who need jobs, and i feel that he should concentrate on taking care of the american people first. host: that is the headline in "the wall street journal" and "the new york times." it says -- host: new york city, luis, independent line. the trustee secretary will be testifying about what he knew about aig and that will be at 10:00 a.m. eastern time live on c-span3. also testifying as former treasury secret
security, medicare and medicaid or as i mentioned, the military. the white house could be up for a fight because already we're hearing from house democrats who say a freeze will hurt the recovery, the president will likely talk about that tomorrow night in the state of the union address. in a minute, one minute exactly, karl rove reacts to that. martha: seeing of that, the new call for fiscal restaint comes less than a year after the president signed an appropriations bill that critickings say was lowed down -- say was loaded down with pork, they found lawmakers in washington just one day away from president obama's first state of the union address. we're joined now by karl rove, bill. bill: karl rove, former senior adviser, deputy chief of staff to president george bush and fox news contributor. want to talk to you about what's going to happen tomorrow night and i've got a list for you, my friend. by the way, how are you? >> doing well, thank you. bill: first on spending the president will propose a spending freeze, house democrats are balking, saying it's not the way to get get -- to g

at the healthcare bill and think it's a terrible proposal, that is going to cut medicare and raise taxes and raise insurance premiums. they want us to stop it. all of a sudden they realize there is an election somewhere in the country where you can effect -- where you can have an impact on it. so it's quite a phenomena. >> let's assume that the election is held and brown is the apparent winner, republican brown. when does that mean for the term in office of paul kirk who is the interim senator, the democrat serving out the balance of senator kennedy's, late senator kennedy's term? does his term end on the day of the election so that whether the in senator is seated or not? do you know? >> it's an interesting academic question. what we have to do is wait until the election is held and then focus on that. the first step is see what the people of massachusetts say on tuesday and then everybody will be looking at the proto ses for swearing in the new senator after that. >> is there any doubt in your mind the winner, if it's brown, would be sworn in promptly, in time to vote on the next, in the next ro
. it will cost us more? >> the center for medicare services says it will cost .6%, almost 1% more. so democrats are saying, hey, this is pretty good. only 1% increase. we're having tremendous increases every year. although this past year we had the lowest increase in a long time. a little over 4% based on the recession. however, that's not the real story. the real story in that report also says that doctors and hospitals will find it unprofitable, perhaps, to take medicare and may, in fact, move away from accepting medicare patients. >> that's the real take away in that report. >> then if -- if the pool of doctors who take medicare patients shrinks, does that lead to what some have referred to as rationing simply because there will be fewer to pick from? >> absolutely. in an alcoholic since, rationing and leads to increased prices for health consumers based on demand, and what it's going to lead to is we have now medicare increases of about 8% a year historically. the government is saying with this plan, we're going to cut medicare a half trillion dollars. can that really be done based upon the
't include homeland security medicare, and it's a very controversial proposal, as you can imagine. it doesn't deal with the big entitlement programs like medicare or medicaid, those types of things, but there are all kinds of folks saying this is not a good idea. republicans, democrats, and even some economists. we heard from the former labor secretary, and he said this is not a good idea and this is how he sees it. >> the government, under the circumstances that we face is the purchaser under the last resort. businesses are not investing very much. they don't want to invest if there are not consumers out there, so the government is going to spend. this is something people have difficulty understanding. >> reporter: he is saying in the short term the government should be spending money and not freezing the money. republicans, there are some republicans that weighed in and said the spending freeze does not deal with the major programs, social security and medicaid, those types of things, and the democrats are saying we are worried about our programs, health care or education, and we don't wa

, a solid rehabilitation facility operator in spite of the massive medicare exposure, becau exposure. and you know what? we were right. we were dead right. we caught the big move up in health care. so what do you do when you didn't really like the stocks? you ring the register. you ring the register on your least favorite names on the group and you focus on some of the others that you actually liked with or without health care reform. and that's the subject of tonight's sell block. i'm telling you you have to take profits in humana, in u & h, despite that good quarter yesterday, and rehab care. and i'm going to tell you why. the main reason to sell these stocks, simply that the easy money has been made. and it is time to stop being greedy. okay? ring the register. if you bought these stocks, you have enormous gains, u & h up 103%. rehab care up 141%. and it's up 12% since we recommended it on november 19th. technically we're not putting these three stocks on the sell block, they don't deserve that. we're simply saying that when you hold your nose and buy merchandise betting it's pric
done more with cost containment or fixing medicare which is already broken instead of just expanding it. there's something in between doing nothing and just doing this bill, isn't there? >> of course, there's always something in between. and i think that the president spent a good deal of time trying to find a bipartisan solution, dealing with senator collins, senator grassley. come on, he spent the whole summer. i mean, i was pulling my hair out by the end of july or the beginning of august that they were still in this kind of scrum with the republican members on the finance committee. >> do you remember hanging on every word grassley said, every word snowe said? >> not really. >> collins? >> not really. >> a long time ago. >> so i think they tried. and at the end of the day, the republicans made a decision that they were just going to be at opposition and hoped that as rush limbaugh famously said, that the president would fail. >> oh, okay. all right. >> that's their political strategy. >> let me ask you -- well, because they could honestly believe that some of these things aren't the
insurance and effort to fix the earlier cuts to doctors under medicare, all of which can add to costs but are not counted. >> we believe the american people need to understand that then the cost to government state and federal is $2.1 trillion. >> perhaps we should call this the mark mcgwire bill. why? because spending is on steroids and there is no transparency. >> the president wasn't at the meeting the entire time but the meeting went on for hours as the democrats struggled to find common ground between the house and senate. new york democrat charles rangel says the democrats are facing serious problems on both sides of the capital. getting a bill passed at all. tomorrow, the president will try to improve the chances by going to capitol hill to make a personal plea to all house democrats. bret? >> bret: okay. we'll stay on it. jim, thank you. we will look at the effect of the haiti earthquake and the u.s. response when the fox all-stars join me after the break. ooo >>> this is a time when we're reminded of the common humanity that we all share. with just a few hundred miles of ocea

unusual because it addresses so little spending, nondiscretionary spending, medicare, medication and social security and defense off the table on the freeze. it is a start and evan bayh from indiana is encouraged by that. senator, good to have you, thanks for coming. >> good to be with you, neil. >> this start, a lot of folks in the other party have said it's not enough of one. in fact it's a joke. the savings we're talking about over ten years, $250 billion, might seem like a lot but in the scheme of spending, closing in on $20 trillion, chump change. what do you say? >> well, i think you've got to have merit to both arguments. it's a significant start and neil you know that by the fact the president is roundly criticized by some segments to want more spending and debt. $250 billion is a important down payment but we need more. there are other parts of the budget this does not touch. that's why which tried to have a long-term commission to wrestle with those problems but the fact the president is willing to step up and freeze this rapidly growing parts of the boing and it's back

this proposed 1% medicare payroll tax hike to fund the obama health care plan by including investments, like capital gains and dividends rather than simply wages. now, the wage hike's bad enough. obama care is bad enough. but applying this to investment simply raises the cost of capital, lowers the return on risk taking, and damages prospects for economic recovery growth. what is team obama thinking. the new year tax attack. i've never seen anything so dumb. i'm not surprised stocks sold off today, especially the bank stocks. and i've got to tell you, if these tax hikes actually get through the congress and the white house in the weeks ahead, the stock market is going to sag, no matter how good fourth-quarter profits come in. you cannot tax your way to prosperity. did i say dumb policy? that is my take. extremely dumb policy. now, i want to get some reaction on this point from our guests. we have ssht director for tax and budget policy at the center for american progress, michael lyndon. we also have the "wall street journal's" steve moore. michael lyndon, because i believe in fairness and o
